Buildings: Current Fellows
PAINTABLE OPTICAL COATINGS
Cypris Materials creates paintable optical coatings that can be used for heat mitigation on the building envelope or serve as a replacement for pigments and dyes.
Fellows: Matthew Ryan and Ryan Pearson
REALTIME ADAPTIVE MACHINE LEARNING
Dauntless.io uses ultra-fast (0.01 - 1 millisecond), adaptive machine learning algorithms to actively control complex physical systems in real-time.
Fellow: Adam Vaughan
Helux is striving to transform how people think about lighting. Using a controllable and state-of-the-art solid state lighting, our technology can electronically adjust light position, brightness, and illumination area.
Project Lead: Jessica Morrison
Nelumbo has developed coatings that improve condensation on heat exchangers, increasing their efficiency by up to 30 percent and mitigating frost without sacrificing corrosion resistance or longevity.
Fellows: Dave Walther and Lance Brockway
Thermionic energy converters can rival the performance of all conventional heat engines in a package that can be scaled from watts to megawatts.
Fellow: Jared Schwede
AFFORDABLE HEATING AND COOLING FOR THE MASSES
Treau has developed soft-matter heat exchangers, compressors, and expanders that are lower cost, higher performance, and more versatile than traditional metal devices.
